Abstract

The academic voice related to learning and teaching (L&T) professional development (PD) is an important consideration in supporting universities’ pursuit of improving their teaching as a core function of their mission. Framed by a typology of L&T PD in Australian universities, this paper reports on a study that investigated academics’ perceptions of L&T PD in an Australia regional university. A thematic analysis was conducted on semi-structured interviews of both academics and academic developers. The findings suggest that L&T PD has a complex dynamic which impacts on academic development in regional-based universities generally and can inform academic development work globally.
